Local fireworks displays light up the skies

Multiple fireworks displays in the region on Tuesday and Wednesday lit up the skies from Bowling Green to Barren River Lake.

Thousands of people turned out for Thunderfest Tuesday at the National Corvette Museum. The event, put on by the Bowling Green Kiwanis Club, featured live music, displays and events for children.

Proceeds from the event go to organizations that benefit children in the area such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Boys and Girls Club. Last year, the festival raised $20,000 for children’s organizations, said Anne Grubbs, Bowling Green Kiwanis Club president.

Alvaton Church of Christ, 10134 Alvaton Road, will host a fireworks display Wednesday. Activities are slated from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., according to the church website.

Cory McNeley, fireworks producer, said the church fireworks will start at 9 p.m. and a larger than usual crowd is expected due to the fireworks bans on household displays.

Barren River Lake State Resort Park, 1149 State Park Road, will host fireworks Wednesday, sponsored by The Friends of Barren River. The fireworks at 9 p.m. will be preceded by a beach party, weather permitting, and the “whatever floats your boat” contest, the website shows.
